How many of you decided to stop dosomething because it was hard? Raise your hands please. Like there was no excuse whatsoever for not getting at what it isthat you should be doing. We’re just so interestedin blaming everybody else and justifies because we don’t want totake on responsibility. So whenever something hurts you there are 2 alternatives You was in a position to become wounded, or you can become wise. This is the choice As Einstein said, “Those that have never failed have never tried” The reason most peopledon’t take action is simple it’s fear. Fear of downfall, panic of success. Perfection equals paralysis In my experience, things almost never exit perfectly even though they are you want them to stuff goes wrong, that’s just living. When everything seemsto be going against you remember that the airplanetakes off against high winds not with it. And once you learnby precipitating on your face, that’s how you learn.You learn by tryingto create a light bulb. Over … and over … and over again. If at first, you disappoint then try, try again When a child’s learning howto walk, it falls down 50 epoches it never stops thinking to itself … “This isn’t for me” We all miscarry. It’s okay. What is not okay is … that when you fail, you stay down. It only took 1 mistaketo turn your whole soul inside out. It exclusively takes 1 good measure to see what you were doing wrong. Because failure is just testing. It’s cruel hard to be a high performance person. Problems are always an indicator that you are making progress. So many of you in here are comfortable and you think exactly because you’recomfortable you’re being successful.I don’t ever definitely sounds like I losebecause I won’t give up. Even if I lose, I’ll do it again. The leverage is in beingaccountable for everything. The leveraging is exposing your defects. We either acquire or we learn. You never look at thatas a default or a loss You look at it asan opportunity to learn. There’s nothing wrong with obligating mistakes and so “whats being” I learn from this? Now, you’re leveragingthis difficulty to grow. Don’t shed the towel in so fast. Many parties give up on the 1 yard front. Whether you’re, you are familiar with, 9, 12, 16, 21, 22, 24 if you flunk, it doesn’t matter. Your failure is irrelevant. There’s not one of you that weren’tdestined to become successful “youve had” dreams and “youve had” goals. And I promise you , nobody can stop you. I don’t think confidence is somethingthat you were born with it’s a skill set. And I had no confidence. So confidence is somethingI educated myself over the years. I started becoming okay with who I am.I became the best version of me. And then, I sort of said, I’m okay.You know, I’m alright. Even if someone elsethinks this, I’m okay. And everyone can do that. People just don’t realize it. So, it constructed me understand that confidence rightfully is the keyto getting ahead in man. If you believe in yourself, the world will believe in you. Because perception is reality. As soon as I started doingeverything that I enjoy there was a surge of influence, a flow of trust, I wasn’t insecure anymore. Because the emotion that had the most dominancein my thought process was actually being paid attention to. I … I’m really sick of being insecure. I trust I’m enoughand I believe that everything I have that I need for life to makeall my dreams is true I know it’s already inside of me. It’s who you areand being comfy with who you are that influences other people to say, “Oh, Okay. Maybe I could do that.” You can’t wait for destiny.No one can do that, you can’t be like, “Oh! Destiny’s going toknock at my door one day.” No, it won’t. You have to be able torecognize opportunities because there’ll be a lot ofthem that come into your life. And once you’ve recognized good opportunities, you have to seize the day and succeed brutal hard-bitten because there’ll be 25 otherpeople who’ll want to do it. If los was not on the table do you “ve realized that” 87% of people tolerate the fear of failure to outweigh their desire to succeed. Failure is required. Success is optional. Successful beings disappoint a great deal. They disappoint a whole lot morethan they succeed.I went all in. I concluded my move beforeI was ready, I took a risk. It didn’t been paid the course I wishes also to but I learned. You don’t lose if you learn. Failure is destined to happen. At some level, you will fail why? Because you’re not good at everything. You can learn so much better, if not more … from your defaults, your non-starts, your reluctances as you are eligible to from your successes. You’ve got a lot going for you, a lot more than you think. If you’re framing their own lives as a failure and making their own lives as a flop you will continue to see simply failure in their own lives. It’s up to you how you bounce back from those defaults. I’ve seen a lot ofincredible beings stopped … by an unwillingness to let go ofa past that doesn’t help them. No retreat No resign You know they say life is9 0% of what happens and the other 10% is how you respond to it.It’s possible. I can do this.I can make this happen. No problem how bad it is or how bad it gets I’m going to make it. I say it’s time for youto turn their own lives around. I say it’s time for you to get backup because living simply smacked you down. I say it’s time for you to swimbecause you’re about to drown. Congratulations. You’ve subsisted 100% of the most difficult instants of their own lives. If in that moment, regardlessof your worldly success, you feel good about who you are.You feeling all right about what you’ve done and how you’ve touchedother people’s lives. You feeling all right about what you’restriving for and trying to accomplish. You feeling all right that inthe times when it came hard it didn’t matter to youyou pushed through That materials. So, in other words your risk of being successful is determined by how well you canbounce back from those downfalls. He was homeless for 3 weeks. Living in a New Jersey Bus Station. He too was so broke at one point, that when he was writing the cinema “Rocky” his electricity was turn out and he was forced tosell his pup for 25 horses exactly to get the glowings turned back on. Then, later on he wasrejected by talent scouts over 1500 times.Probably, most famousfor his work in “Rocky”. Sylvester Stallone She was once told that she didn’thave the face for television. “Your only shot to make itin this TV industry was to be behind the camera, not in front of it.” Forbes mentioned that in 2004, she passed apart 276 autoes to members of her audience. She ultimately paved the road for many of ourother beloved talk-show legions. Now, she has her own structure. A appoint that wreaks smilesto people all regions of the world. He formed theme park. With the reputation of being”The Happiest Place on Earth”. His commons are created withcreativity and thought from the very secondyou enter into their gates. Long before he became known asthe inventor of this mystical sit, he was fired from the newspaperthat he once succeeded at. They shot him because his bosssaid, he paucity imagination.Walt Disney An American Film-maker. He is considered one ofthe Founding Pioneers of the brand-new Hollywood Era. And one of the most popularDirectors and Producers in Film history. He steered “Jurassic Park”. It made almost 939 million dollars. But what you might not know, is that he got rejectedfrom cinema institution 3 times. The film clas that accepted him last-minute offered him an Honorary Degree and hired him to becomeTrustee of the School. Steven Spielberg He is an actor, a comedian, impressionist, Screenwriter, a musician, creator, and even a painter. But growing up was a different story. He was excessively inadequate, even at persons under the age of 15, he worked as a porter to help his family pay the bills. And to hear his first performanceat a comedy organization, he was booed off theatre. Now you can’t go anywhere in the worldwithout person knowing accurately who Jim Carrey is.Failure is not a bad thing it is a stepping stone toyour next height of greatness. Los promotes youropportunity for success. It is a pre-requisite for success How bad do you want to succeed? The better question is how much are you willing to fail? Never let yourself be the victim. If I could go back in time, and have a conversationwith my 8 to 10 year old-fashioned soul, that would be the message I would give.Because when you thinkabout it, you’re a kid things don’t go your practice, what do you do? You cry, you squeak, you throw a fit, you require your parentsto feel sorry for you, you feel sorry for yourself. It’s how, how you dealwith things at that senility. And then you grown up but you don’t definitely shed that attire, that attitude. And it becomes obvious, right? I signify, you can talkto someone for 30 seconds and you know right away if the government has that martyr attitude, the world falling down, they’re tired, they have so much to do, they’re so hectic, X-Y-Z. Look, having that mindset, does 2 things for you.One, it attains you comeacross helpless and weak. And no one wants to come across that acces. Two, it should not get youto where you’re going, it does not change the situation. Right? Now is the reality. There is alwaysa way to get what you want. There is always a wayto outlook yourself, freed from what you don’t want. You can quite literally becomewhat you want to become but you cannot look at life like it’s this question, like it’s against you. The ball is in your field. You know, it wasn’t thatlong ago, 2 – 3 years ago, that I was not the happiestguy in the world. Right? Did not like what I was doing, should not like how I was investing my occasion, was not energized, was not passionate about very much. But the time camewhere I didn’t want to live like that. I had a conversation with myself, I stopped being the victim, I stopped complaining, and I questioned myself, “dude, what is it you people want? What is your purpose? What is your goal? Who do you want to become? ” And I literally concluded the decisionand walked away a different person.And the things around mechanged, my life deepened because I made a decisionto never be the victim again, to get what I demand. I became the author of my own fib. And you realize just how simple it isto transform your situation. Not easy, right? And it takes time. But there’s always a wayto get from quality A to item B. And this separates the worldinto 2 various kinds of beings. Beings who look at how things are, who accept reality as truth, who complain. And people who look at what can be, who make the most of any statu, look at life as if it’s clay to be molded, to be shaped. It seems funny to meknowing what I do now that I went through any of my lifelike a hamster on a pedal that I talked to people everydaywho didn’t invigorate me that I didn’t want to be around, that I did thingsI wasn’t passionate about. That is foolishnes. Because if you don’t like something, but you do nothing to change it, what’s left for you to do? Complain, complaint, stay where you are, that’s it.See, one of the reasonsI reference sportings so much is because they bringthis attitude on you. That when things become difficult, when things become challenging your work, your one jobis to find a way to figure it out. And I always did, and I took that and I imparted itto everything else I do. And now it is eye opening to see beings achievingsuccess, financial naturalnes, these things everyone wants. And know that the differencebetween them and everyone else is that they felt like they “ve earned it”. A pile of the time theyweren’t smarter, stronger they weren’t more gifted starting out but they moved toward what the fuck is wanted.They didn’t cry or groanabout the problems, they didn’t look for sympathy. Those at the top ofthe mountain are not preys. They will never cause themselves be victims. It’s about the other side, the opportunity. Getting from where you are to what you want. The- the first step is belief, right? People think that beliefcomes once you’ve done it. You won’t even take the first step if you don’t believeyou can achieve it.So, we contribute with belief as a species. So, you have to finda way to believe in it to move so your momma is giving youan awesome challenge. Can you believe in the faceof her mistrust, right? And to me, when people doubt me, it’s a gift. I love thatbecause I believe in beauty and frenzy and there is a requirement to both. I need people to cherish me, I need to want beautiful thingsfor myself and for others, I want to create something stunning, I want to help a lot of parties. I also want to prove a lot of beings wrong who don’t think that I can do this. I want to vanquish the enemies that want to see me disappoint, that want to do anythingthey can to ensure that I disappoint. I spend 80% of my occasion here, and 20% of my season here.And the ambiguity is as Darth Vader will tell you there’s power on the dark side. And formerly you learn to counterbalance those then you really get something interesting. And here’s another way to say it You have to know when to love yourself, and know when to hate yourself. I think it’s 80/20 again. You just wanted to expend 80% of the time loving youand being proud of who you are no matter where you are , no matter what part ofyour pilgrimage you’re in.Really adoration that you’reshowing up, that you’re playing, perhaps you’re not yet satisfiedwith the level you’re playing at. But no worries, like you’re there, you’re doing it, you’re exhibition up. And then 20% of the time beingwildly disappointed by yourself, being scared by the factthat you were so lazy and so afraid of being coldthat you wouldn’t get out of bed. Like that’s terrifyingand that is not acceptable That’s not a person that you’reprepared to continue to be and that you simply find thatso disgusting in yourself that you’re going to makean immediate reform. And if you don’t do that, you’ll never flourish. You’ll devote all your timeover here, you’ll be allayed. Talk about being quelled by the dreammerely having the dream. I want to do good things for beings – have you heard a lot of people say that? – yeah Yeah, people say that all day “I want to do great thingsI want to help the world.” In what style? Like they don’t get specific, so they appeased by the dream.So, you’ve got this person who isreally not living up to their potential being mollified by the vision of whatthey can do and who they could become but they never to your earlier pitch, they never find the path to execution. So, I find, withoutkicking myself in the butt without being deeplydissatisfied with myself 20% of the time because if it’s more than 20% ofthe time you begin to erode yourself and it gets unusually corrosive.You’ll chip away at your ownself-esteem and that’s a total squander. But you do have to bewilling to kick your butt See, I recognized earlier today in life-time that life isn’t just about government decisions that we conclude. You know what I’m saying? If you don’t become whoyou’re supposed to become beings going to die. That’s deep.Now think about it. If you don’t become whoyou’re supposed to become, like beings going to hurt. Like if I don’t hitthe reset button in man, Who knows where Brianwould be right now? Who knows where the team would be? Like There’s something inside you. And so, “thats why they” do which is something we do.Because I don’t know if Like, all y’all are probablyfeeling the presentation but how many of you are reallygoing to apply what we gave you? It “couldve been” 10%, it could be 40%, I don’t know. But what took place todaycould change your life forever because you’ve got a brain. So when you find yourself down and out, you go think about man, If Jill was in her vehicle, homelessand pregnant and she got through it That girl has sang in Africa and beento Ecuador and all over the globe. If she could do it, you know now you could do it. And some of you got somehomeboys you connected with but you know they aren’t really livinghow you are supposed to be living and they head you down the wrongway, you are familiar with from Brian’s story. Yo, if I remove myself from it, if I plug in with positive beings I can make it. Listen, I crave for youwhat we’re experiencing. One of my homeboys was like, “J, you gotta take it easy.You want everybody toexperience a great life like you”. I’m like “bro, why not? I’m trying to prevail. I just wanted to win.” I went through too much ache. When Tony was sharingwhat she was sharing Jill, both of them get dealt with people takingadvantage of them when they were little. Listen to me somebody. I know you’re suffering. I know you’re hurting onthe inside, you wonder why? Like why this got to happen to me? Why I gotta knowledge this? Why this person had totake advantage of me? I promise you, you are turning into a warrior. Because the stuff thatyou’re going through, the stuff that you have to experience, What don’t kill you draws you stronger. If you look at the catthat goes to the gym and he’s lifting weightsand he’s pumping iron. If you ask homeboy “Hey bro, howdid you get so large-hearted? ” They will tell you.”It took a whole lot of term and I hadto go through a whole lot of pain.” And life is going to grow you. Listen to me right now, life is going to grow you. It is not going to be easy, it is going to be painful, it is going to be frustrating. You’re going to shed some cries, you’re probably going to spill some blood. It’s going to hurtbut you’ve gotta preserve pushing. You know when there’snothing left to do but to fight with everything you’ve got to get back up there’s a word for it Resilience.And that utterance comesdown to such a simple test. Not much involved. But in the moments that matter most it’s everything. You and a mirror looking into your own sees and realizingthere’s nowhere else to go but up, and being ready for what that makes. It’s a single decision. The same decisionyou’ll need to stimulate daily Get up. It’s what gets someone to writeletter after note after letter. Looking for a responsibility because theyknow all they need is a start. It’s what causes someone tokeep moving straight forward even when the start of their journeyshould have slapped them off track. Resilience and gumption these aren’t fairly words.They mean something much moreto those who know them well. These texts have disfigures, they epitomize the duel but they are also the gatewayto something so special. It’s what it means to lose 8 ballots, be presented at berthed for 6 monthsafter a nervous breakdown, then to get up and do what it takesto enter the books of biography. It is the power behindgetting scorned 12 seasons before bang-up almost every recordand every ceiling imaginable.Resilience. That’s the word leftwhen the blizzards keep working, when things proceed from bad to worse, every reason to stop trying. The moment we all gethumbled by at some pitch, sometimes more than formerly. There are times for dreams and sometimes there is onlytime for current realities of now. Picking up one foot, then the other. Starting to move forward step by step. Tears and annoyance, another step. Hurt and sadness, another step. Shaking off what was, you simply keep going. It’s the light-footed that ultimately breaksafter the darkest of lights. In the moment that matters You .. and a reflect same decision daily. Knowing it’s going to be long, knowing there’s no other method. That .. is .. resilience. The rigors of academic living can be brutal. Long daylights of class, long nights of studying, and low cash flow requires you to be frugal. Project, client studies, pop quizzes and final exams will test your lessons and your scruples. But you keep propagandizing and pushing because you know one day all of that hard work and studying will pay off and be fruitful.You’ve seen many otherssuccumb to academic downfall and wind up with the wrongletter on their record. The dreaded W which dreadfully stands for withdrawal. But that’s where you draw the line because you’ve made a vowto choose incline over nosedive, fast forward over rewind, redesign over recline and hard grind over pout and complaint. You moved the choice to mine late within. And thus the only W you will ever get will be the W that stands for WIN. Because wins like you pickthemselves up when they stumble and slip. Winners like you understandthat it is impossible to never trip. Champions like you arestrong enough to say no when their friendswant them to take a sip. Winners looks just like you rely the process so steps they never ever try and skip. And that chipping on your shoulder it remains to remind you of allthe doubters, nay-sayers, and haters. They said you would never walkacross that stage and receive that paper but more gasoline for your ardor merely stirs success so much greater.Because you overcomingthe sour appetite of now to get to the sweet taste of later. You adjust to allthe different temperaments of your both teachers and professors and enjoy those that are super cool but remain mentally preparedfor those that are stressors. Praises seem to find you because the universe plots to make sure everything falls into place. Because you’ve got so muchheart, infatuation and passion. Your fire continues burning but at times it starts to fizzle but you rememberyou owe it to your future self and that gas turnsthat fizzle into a sizzle. You want to leave a legacy and contribute to the greater good. So, for now is the uncomfortable discipline and sacrifice.Because the cash out in the future means today you got to pay the price. So that wants when yourfriends expect “Can you go? ” Your heart wants to say yes but your willpower says no. Because Mr. Jones’ Thermo-Chemistry 3202 ain’t no joke. And so, you gotta belocked in and bide woke because he’s all about business and doesn’t give any rope.So, if you miss anyassignments or disappoint any experiment you have very little hopeof passing his class. But you will pass his class and you will pass with flying colors. Because you, your best friend, are an academic hustler. And thus you put in the time, their own efforts and ask all the right questions tomake sure all of your bases are covered. The vultures will detest. You tried to give them vision but they never put on the right makes. And thus their see was blurryand their evaluate showed it. And now they want to throw shade at you but your shield avoided it. You said about acquiring in progress over here so please eliminate the negative vibe. It’s time to remove them from your curve and find yourself a positive tribe. Because misery loves firm but that misery cannot haveany of your camaraderie because everybodyon your team is working as a part “re coming” and acquire the championship.You owe it to your future self to make money movesin and out of the classroom. Because time waits for no one. And whether you attained or miscarry, it will pass soon. So, respect your personal firebrand and make sure your daily advertisementrepresents who you want to be. Walk with courage and integrity so your thought in the mirror is who you want to see. Your future selfis counting on your current self to set the atmosphere and make sureyour future is not only shining but powerful and strong for mediocrity. Your future self is countingon your current self to never take shortcutsand never scarcity soundnes. Because the day will come for you to walk withcharacter and have purity. Greatness is your destiny.But at times you mustreboot your mental computer Because each step you take today will instantly alter … your future. Your future self is countingon your current self to give every ounce of your being, every ounce of your soul to make sure you tap into your endow. This is a great day to WIN ..
